More motions filed in Magoffin County mansalughter case

SALYERSVILLE, Ky. -- A Magoffin County case involving the death of a 4-year-old is getting more complicated.

Cameron Mullins died two years ago from what the coroner called blunt force trauma.

The child's father, James Garcia, who was originally charged with first degree manslaughter, agreed to amended charges of reckless homicide back in February.

Last week the judge rejected the plea agreement James Garcia made in the case.

At that point the defense filed a motion asking the judge to recuse herself.

The defense argued in court that no media attention has been given to this case in the past year until this month when the judge rejected the plea deal.

The judge denied the motion and said the offer given to her was incomplete.
